Made with Sangiovese and just a drop of Canaiolo and Colorino, this full-bodied red offers subdued aromas of ripe blackberry, baking spice and tobacco. On the palate, notes of licorice, ground pepper, clove and leather add depth to the core of ripe black cherry. Tightly knit but polished tannins provide the framework. Drink 2016–2023.
